    Nerds: Once a tormented subrace of humans... Now captains of industry! You don’t have to be a stereotypical geekwad to appreciate the tenets of Nerdism and to make your innate talents for overanalysis and hyper-self-awareness work for you instead of against you. Join Nerd superstar Chris Hardwick as he offers his fellow “creative-obsessives” the crucial information needed to come out on top in the current Nerd uprising. Success is the most satisfying - and legal - form of vengeance there is. And you can achieve it when you follow the Nerdist Way,

    Any additional comments?

    This is the only non medical self help book I would ever recommend to someone. There are many great books if you are looking to help better your mental health (ask a professional) but this one is pretty fantastic. Chris Hardwick is funny, open, smart and honest about his own struggles with mental health and addiction. The book is written for those who are more on the nerdy side but I think some of his tactics and ideas (obviously learned from his own professional psychiatrist) can be beneficial to anyone. Plus the book is funny and entertaining.

    Bob Howard is a computer-hacker desk jockey, who has more than enough trouble keeping up with the endless paperwork he has to do on a daily basis. He should never be called on to do anything remotely heroic. But for some reason, he is.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    For me it was not well spent. I found the book disjointed and dull. I was really looking forward to listening to this one but there were to many problems with this title.

  • Delivered From Distraction: Get the Most Out of Life with Attention Deficit Disorder

    In 1994, Driven to Distraction sparked a revolution in our understanding of attention deficit disorder. Now a second revolution is under way in the approach to ADD, and the news is great. Drug therapies, our understanding of the role of diet and exercise, even the way we define the disorder, all are changing radically. And doctors are realizing that millions of adults suffer from this condition, though the vast majority of them remain undiagnosed and untreated.

    What did you love best about Delivered From Distraction?

    For me this title best illustrates the complexity and realities of living with Attention Deficit Disorder.


    What other book might you compare Delivered From Distraction to and why?

    I've read so many titles on this topic but none are really worth mentioning aside from books sold in University book stores for those studying Special Education.
